Paper Abstract

The Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) instrument is one of the ten scientific instruments on board the Solar Orbiter mission to be launched in October 2018. It will provide full-sun and high-resolution images of the solar corona in the extreme ultraviolet (17.1 nm and 30.4 nm) and in the vacuum ultraviolet (121.6 nm). The validation of the EUI instrument design has been completed with the Assembly, Integration and Test (AIT) of the instrument two-units Qualification Model (QM). Optical, electrical, electro-magnetic compatibility, thermal and mechanical environmental verifications were conducted and are summarized here. The integration and test procedures for the Flight Model (FM) instrument and sub-systems were also verified. Following the Qualification Review, the flight instrument activities were started with the assembly of the flight units. The mechanical and thermal acceptance tests and an end-to-end final calibration in the (E)UV will then be conducted before delivery for integration on the Solar Orbiter Spacecraft by end of 2016.
